Who I Am

  • Student
  • Brother
  • Teammate
  • Leader

I am the oldest of five kids in a large, Irish family of seven. Championing hard work and committment, I was the 2014 Valedictorian of Prospect High School, sporting a perfect GPA, 35 ACT, and 2310 SAT while playing varsity football and tennis.

Achieving 5's on eleven AP exams in high school enabled my current pursuit of two degrees in four years at Notre Dame, namely Electrical Engineering and Physics.

Now in my second year of school, I have conducted research with groups in both fields. Current leadership roles include acting as a Squad Lead for the NASA sponsored Notre Dame Rocketry Team and my long-standing status as a campus-wide STEM tutor.

Outside of the classroom I enjoy playing the acoustic guitar, tinkering with Arch Linux, microcontrollers, and embedded systems, and playing dorm football and basketball.





  • Excellent Comprehension and Problem Solving
  • Thrive in Fast-Paced Environments
